4 Signs It’s Time to Replace Your Current Air Conditioner

Although investing in a new air conditioning system can seem daunting, all air conditioners have an expiration date and will need to be replaced sooner or later. And while sometimes a repair is all you need to get your HVAC system up and running, there will come a point when repairs may actually cost you more than upgrading to a shiny, new system.

If you’re on the fence about the future of your AC, here are four signs it’s time to replace your current system:

1. Your HVAC System Is More Than 10 Years Old

The average HVAC system has a lifespan between 10 and 15 years—but only if it is properly maintained. If your air conditioning system is starting to break down more often, require costly repairs, and it is more than 10 years old, your best best is to replace the system.

2. Your Energy Bills are Increasingly Expensive

Do your energy bills keep getting higher and higher? If you haven’t been using your air conditioning system more often than normal, but your energy bills are increasingly expensive, there may be something wrong with your system. The components within your air conditioner may be wearing down, causing high electricity bills—especially if your system is more than 10 years old. Replacing the system entirely will likely save you money on future electricity bills.

3. Your HVAC System Needs Frequent Repairs

While it’s normal to get your air conditioning system repaired every once in awhile, frequent repair costs can quickly add up and put a dent in your wallet. If your air conditioner seems to need repaired more often than not, it is a definite sign it needs to be replaced. A new air conditioner might seem like a big investment right now, but it can actually save you money it in the long run.

4. Your House Just Isn’t Comfortable

If your house does not maintain a comfortable temperature, your air conditioning is not doing its job. If your air conditioning system is not able to keep your house cool enough and repairs aren’t resolving the issue, your system may be too old or the wrong size for your home. In either case, it’s likely time to replace it with something new.
